Selected by Carol Ann Duffy for the 2019 Laureate’s Choice Collection
Sharp and observant, Soft Touch uses wry humour to balance the pathos arising from picking holes in life’s day-to-day dramas. Cole often finds poetry in the mundane, twisting fantasy and truth with a memorable resonance.
Sharp-edged and sharp-witted; richly humane and darkly humorous. These deft poems are both crystalline and subtle
